Die Hard (TurboGrafx-16)
Fortunately that enemy dropped his rifle, so now I'm armed and making some progress. McClane is fast enough to weave between enemy gunfire easily, so getting into position to take a shot at them is no trouble. And one shot is all it takes.
And now we go to the skyscraper and rescue the hostages right?
Actually to be honest ANY DEVIATION FROM THE ORIGINAL SOURCE MATERIAL cuts into my soul and makes me want to shake my fists at the screen in tears of frustration and despair. But they gave me a grenade launcher so I'm going to let them off.
And now I'm standing in a small room, totally unarmed, with 4 guns... 3 guns pointed directly at my head.
I think I have a plan though.
I was kind of hoping one of them would drop a rifle. Still, the enemy on the right dropped a health... beer? So it wasn't a total disaster.
I thought I was in the basement already, where's he falling to? The center of the Earth?
Well I've got lots of continues left, but I don't really want to continue to be honest. I was liking the game just fine at the start, the gameplay is actually pretty solid. But I've got no interest in trying to find my way out of a maze.
It's a shame though, because I was so close to making it into the actual building. Probably.
